WORLD PREMIERE

We are proud to be the first to produce this comedic, enchanting play that explores the very nature of storytelling. At first glance, Iago Speaks appears to follow the events immediately after the curtain comes down on Shakespeare’s Othello, but the story quickly turns, introducing us to Iago’s Jailor, a bit player, as he tries to find some purpose in his repetitive task of keeping watch over Iago (Skye Brandon). Don't quite 'get' Shakespeare? Don't worry - neither does the Jailor (Joshua Beaudry). This laugh-out-loud comedic romp into the imagined next chapter of a notorious Shakespearean villain is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
